Our scripture this morning is Psalms 4:6-8.

Many people say, “Who will show us better times?” Let your face smile on us, Lord. You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine. In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.

God wants to be a part of everything we do, with us in every moment. He has amazing things for us when we walk with Him. However, we must choose to make Him part of our lives.

God doesn’t just insert Himself into what we are doing. While He is our creator and capable of all things, He has given us free will to make our own choices. God waits for us to invite Him into our lives. 

What does that mean for us? It is essential for us to ask God to be part of our everyday existence, not just a chance meeting in church on Sunday. When we give ourselves and the things we do to Him, amazing kingdom work can result! Then as the psalmist says we may “lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe”.

Gracious God, thank You for wanting a relationship with us. Bless us to live for You that all the world may know Your love and care. Amen.
